No.

#527

Think we need arsenic memes aswell now tbh


#528

#529

I haven’t seen this many random journos, since i started following Arsenic.


#530

What shirt number might he get?

29? 19? :eyes:


#531

73 :giroud2:


#532

11?


#533

I’d like it if he had Gilberto’s old number :slightly_smiling_face:


#534

His favourite number is 34, that what he wears for Samp – it obviously means something to him as he has a tattoo of it, but that’s Xhaka’s number, who also has it tattooed – what are the chances?! :laughing:

He’s worn 4 before and wears 14 for Uruguay, so the 4 might hold some significance too.


#535

We’ve just given 4 to Elneny! Maybe need to make him revert to his previous squad number.

Unless I am mistaken…24 is available…


#536

He’s our new Jack Bauer


#537

#538

Whaaaaat? I still can’t get over watching Tolisso wear 94(!) at Besiktas or Inler wearing 88 at Napoli.

Does anyone know why he wore 88? I always assumed it was the year he was born.


#539

88 is a controversial number. When Buffon tried to wear 88 at Parma everyone freaked out because it’s the Nazi symbol for Heil Hitler!

He said he liked it because 88 reminded him of four balls resting on each other, so maybe that’s why Inler chose it too?


#540

Inler…Himler…88? Too much of a coincidence imo.


#541

Buffon has got form with fascist tendencies though, no?


#542

Can’t the English FA deny numbers over 50, if it’s not a academy player that is? Someone said it in the old board I think.


#543

I don’t think there’s an actual rule. Iheanacho was #72 before he left for Leicester.


#544

Can’t see this go bad… :arteta:
